So your position when faced with a person who says "that's not what I meant" and another person who says "that's not what I thought he meant" is to say "yeah, you're both wrong"?

Anyways this is getting rather tedious. I'd love to see him come back and actually give me a good insult because now I just feel like a bully but whatever.

"DK Unlove" would be more appropriate as the name of a fragrance/cosmetics line.

"DK Unlove" by Ernie. Available soon at a retailer of distinction near you.

I have a good friend who worked in telecom coding instructions for satellites.

She moved up and out of the technical group and into sales.

Her technical background was very useful in that regard.

But ultimately, you're both right, in her case:

1. She found coding to be a very individual and ultimately lonely working experience and wanted to do something that was more social in orientation as far as executing tasks as a team.

2. She was getting hit on by everyone, married or otherwise, in the technical group. She is an attractive woman and the stories about how awkward the advances were could probably be incorporated in a book.

Shoulder massages, poems left under keyboards, all kinds of junior high crap. It was harassment, and she recognized that, but more often she had to explain why to the other coders because they were so socially inept that they didn't even realize.

Moving to the sales group where people had a modicum of social intelligence instantly ended the unwanted advances.

I've met some of these coders at her x-mas party. It's like Big Bang Theory but creepier. She said it was weird but she was repulsed and yet felt pity for them at the same time.

Thats because women are prudes that don't let their inner sexual beast out until a real man comes in and shows it to them. By force if necessary.

Yup, and for what it's worth, I'd say that not many men are interested in that type of work either. It takes a certain personality to be able to do it.

It depends on the industry a little. My understanding is the web dev places are pretty hipstery, but the engineering dev places, like the satellite thing, are still pretty nerdy.
